We all know that a villain is just a hero who needs to get a better PR department. The "bad guy" seldom believes that he or she is actually bad, and usually has reasons for his or her actions. But what's your favorite story that shows the villain's point of view on a set of events?

Please include a picture, book cover, poster, clip, comics panel or other piece of artwork for your chosen "villain POV" story. And please mention the name, and why it was so great. Thanks!
